Jimmy Joseph - Kwakwaka'wakw Artist

Master Carver Jimmy Joseph is Kwagiulth from Alert Bay.  He is a fourth generation carver.  He's been carving professionally for over 30 years.  He lives a traditional lifestyle - hunting, fishing, and attending potlatches.  He's also an active member of the Native American Church.  Jimmy is a residential school survivor.  He gave up drinking when he began carving, and never picked it up again.

Using traditional designs, materials, techniques, and tools Jimmy creates beautiful carved tables, masks, plaques, totem poles and many other art objects.  He draws the designs freehand, then carves and paints them.  Each piece is unique.
